    Pros

    SEH's tag line of Builiding a Better World for All of Us is something we live as engineers, scientists, architects and professionals living in the communities we provide service to.
    Overall the company has a good work environment, flexible to your needs whether entry or senior level. Fair comp and benes. Opportunities are there for career and professional growth.
    Financially solid and growing.
    The company is multi-disciplined which helps with stability and allows employees to work on cross functional projects. There is excellent technical knowledge throughout the firm.

    Cons

    May be a little slow to move.

    Pros

    good communication- try to keep people as long as possible and make the position work. Overall enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to hire someone. Once someone is hired, if they can't perform they may be here for a long time before being let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the good culture & figure out how to maintain competitiveness.

    Pros

    SEH is a great place to work for if you have a lot of family commitments and want to progress in your career at your own pace. Very friendly people. They are very flexible.

    Cons

    The money is not that great. Benefits are just OK. If you are looking for fast paced life. This company is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to act fast on expanding into new practices and into new geographic locations if they want to progress on the ENR rankings.

    Pros

    Fiscally sound, they are able to make proactive moves in a down economy. Great people, friendly folks for the most part. Strong technical leadership in most markets. Making good strides to secure long term succession plans. Really great insurance program. Moving to pay for performance bonuses for project managers.

    Cons

    They use a very long industrial psychology test as part of their hiring process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the test.
